We need to build on our 5-0 destruction of Levante by beating Villareal on Sunday evening. Classy playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme is struggling to be fit for this game after suffering an injury in training therefore joining Sebastian Battaglia, Roger and Javier Calleja on the treatment table. Villareal at full-strength play some great football and can be extremely dangerous, so with all these injury problems they are facing this is the best time to play them.
As for Real Madrid, all eyes will be on the showdown in Rome next week and according to AS and Marca, Raul and Zidane will both be rested so Owen is set to start upfront with Ronaldo. Figo is also not likely to play.
Probable line up:
Villareal 0-3 Real Madrid.
I would happily accept a 1-0 win, the clean sheet is the most important thing to me.
